Last Saturday, I went to the Ninja Restaurant(all the staff are dressed as ninjas - it's great!) in Akasaka with my friend Mami.
The front of the restaurant isn't like a normal restaurant, there is just a door
in a black wall and if you were to walk past it, you probably wouldn't even realise that it was there. When you go in you are led by a person dressed as a ninja through a number of dark passages, until you come to a river. Then the ninja shouts the secret codeword(originally enough the word is 'ninja') and a drawbridge is lowered. You then make your way into the main dining area, which has a very traditional Japanese look and is also very dark, which adds brilliantly to the atmosphere.
The food was delicious and there was also lots of entertainment in the form of ninja magicians, who come up to your table and perform tricks. I had a great time and I'll definitely be going back.
You can see the official site for the restaurant here.
